TUESDAY, APRIL 14, 1042 BLYTIIEV1LLE (ARK.), COURIER NEWS PACIFJCOCEAN: THE UNITED NATIONS BEGIN TO HOLD THAT LINE HOUSTON, Tex. (UP)—W. B. Fergu:on, 53, a veteran geologist, has employed his hobby of photography to develop a new method of oil exploration which U within easy reach of the small operator. Oil men say Ferguson's method is revolutionary, showing through action of ultra violet rays upon photographic plates whether any •given material contains hydrocarbons—oil and ga-j. Established methods for similar exploration were expensive and elaborate chemical analysee, which were within the financial means of . major oil companies or large in- j dependents only. * Ferguson said he was "tinkering with photography when the principle occurred "like a flash," so simple that he was surprised that it had -not been discovered already. An Economical Analysis The geologist gives full credit to his wife, Lee, also a photography enthusiast and now his business partner, and to Dr. L. W. Blau, research physicist for Humble Oil and Refning company, for assisting him. Blau made the company's laboratory equipment available to f, him. Humble Oil is using his principle. "I do not claim to find oil; only drilling can do this," Ferguson said, "but my method does go a long way toward an economical analysis of soil and well cuttings,. "By utilizing- ultra-violet rays, my equipment is able to photograph whether any soil sample or cutting- carries hydrocarbons. "It is is especially valuable in analyzing well cuttings. It is possible to show whether or not oil or gas may be expected at lower depths in any drilling well," Ferguson explained. •Here is Ferguson's procedure: An operator, wishing to test the probabilities of the presence of oil in an undriilcd area, selects soil samples well distributed over the sector, properly labelling each sample. Advantage of Secrecy Ferguson washes each sample,, treats it with heat, pulverizes it and puts a small quantity into a small capsule. He then places the numbered samples under a special camera and cvposes thgm for periods ranging up to 72 hours. After exposure, he develops the photographic plate. Samples containing hydrocarbons photograph dark. By plotting the samples on rf map, the operator can determine the probable presence or trend of a field. Ferguson said that his method is' rapid' and-~"osts about, three cents an acre for his .soil analysis and not more than 10 to 15 cents a acre for detailed work. It also has ihe advantage of ever, the enigma; U.
